late in the 19th century or early in the 20th century, and although it united states wasn't a big player in the struggle when we did play we were usually on the right side. there are several famous incidents when the young american teacher by the name of how -- howard was fighting on the side of the constitutionalist and 1910, 1911 president taft sent a treasury team to help the constitutionalists get control of the budget and of the country's finances because the new without that, they were nothing and they had no chance. there was also frustrating. the u.s. was seen as playing a positive role in the azerbaijan crisis in helping iran to restore its sovereignty, territorial integrity. 1953 and what happened with the coup unfortunately changed all of that. one can argue why that happened, how that happened. were there reasons for it. but at that point basically the u.s. changed its view from being a friend and supporter of the nationalism to be something of the great britain. >> in negotiating with iran, you talked about misjudgments on both sides when it comes to the 1979 hostage
to iran in terms of views of the united states. so there's a very different dynamic on the ground among libyan youth. notwithstanding what we're seeing in the news. um, and i thought the uprising in benghazi was hugely a success, important to think about when 30,000 people rose up a few weekends ago to throw out islamist militias. the population once again taking control of the situation where a dysfunctional government wasn't able to. and i found the intervention very interesting because in many ways i think the main bogeyman was not the islamist militias, but the fear of what the 30,000 would do if things got much worse. which brings up another thing that i should have said in the introductory remarks, the arab spring, the dynamic, we view it as people against regimes, but just as important is regimes against regimes and people against people, and i'm happy to talk about those in the q&a, but it's not just people against regimes. following benghazi, a well known libyan academic said something which stuck with me. he said libyans have no idea where they're going, but they're going to g
. it was a reference to the united states, but, to me, because i grew up in this hometown surrounded by mountains, and i didn't know where the united states was, to me, it was the other side of the mountains, and during that time, my parents were gone working here in the u.s.. i looked at the mountains and think my parents were over there, on the other side of those mountains. that was that to me. >> host: originally, where were you born? >> guest: in mexico, southern mexico in a little city that no one heard of, but when i mention alcapaco, everybody knows that. it was three hours from there. >> host: when did your parents come to the united states? how old were you? >> guest: my father came here in 1997 when i was two years old, and he send for my mother a few years later in 1980 when i was four and a half years old. >> host: when did you come to the united states? >> guest: i came to the united states in 198 # 5. >> host: how old were you? >> guest: in may of 1985, nine and a half going on ten. >> host: what can you tell us about coming to the united states? what was your trek? >> guest: well,
think that i am running for the united states senate because it is my job to make sure that future generations that are coming up behind me have the same opportunities my family had. >> senator heller. >> i want to thank pbs, sponsors, and my opponent for being here this evening. i grew up with five brothers and sisters, and i raised four children of my own. i learned that an early stage it is more important to listen than it is to talk. that is what i have done. there are concerns about staying in their homes and keeping their jobs. senior citizens are worried about health care and about if the doctor is even going to accept medicare and the future. they are worried about this fiscal cliff. there are real issues with real people. i believe i will supply those real solutions. the result may be different, but i want to change the dialogue of this particular debate, a challenge for myself and my opponent for us to discuss these issues. we treat voters like adults. if we can do that, i think we will increase the dialogue here, and i think that is what nevada deserves. >> you have the
. it was a bit of a head fake after months of saying that we, the united states, should arm the syrian rebels. it was a clever word choice in this speech. what it actually said is, they should be armed, and then took a step back as to who should actually do it, how it would be done. he still does not like to answer the questions about what kinds of arms, who they would go to, and the risk that they could fall into extremist groups, or, frankly, the risks that they could threaten our ally, israel. the united states has been incredibly engaged and active in syria with the rebel forces under the president's leadership. it is an incredibly difficult situation. we have provided logistical support, communications support, worked with our allies, worked with turkey, tried to support -- provided as much humanitarian aid as we can, but anybody who speaks to the u.s. ambassador on this question -- still the calculation is providing support from the united states into the rebels' hands at this time would have a very uncertain outcome. we are working very hard with the rebel forces, and clearly, as the p
is inconceivable that the president of the united states was unaware of the facts that were obvious to the intelligence community. how could he have not known and if he didn't know, who kept that information from him? >> governor, that is the duty of inquiry. you ran a government. you understand and i think particularly where there is notice and now you should be getting real time that -- that give accurate and actual information. this is the same paradigm we are seeing i fast and furious e the response is well, we didn't know anything about it. and you can't be able to be held unaccountable because you choose not to listen to those who have information to bring to you. and i'm being kind when i say choose not to listen. i think there is a duty of inquire arery. there is a duty of responsibility when something that significant that had to be one of the most important things the federal government was is responding to at that moment and for them to say that they aren't aware of the circumstances suggests one of two things. either incompetentence or are misrepresentation. >> mike: i
of the special interest loopholes and here is the amazing part, that bill passed the united states senate 97-3. that is bipartisanship. call me optimist but i think there is the opportunity to get that deal. >>neil: conservatives were critical of ronald reagan for giving away allowances and breaks. but he did so to get a deal. that was called "negotiating." >>guest: in the end it was a great deal. the only problem was what has happened in the subsequent 25 years we keep adding to the tax code all o the garbage and all of the termites that are destroying the tax system. i like the idea of a reform and i would not, i do think there is a chance we could get entitlement reform which is harder than the tax reform. >>neil: i think you are right, steve. thank you very much. >>guest: optimistic today. >>neil: call it a demand for apple's iphone with sales chiling more than 1 percent, with the launch of the new iphone 5 fueling that increase because electronics-related sales surged 4.5 percent but high gas prices pushed the sales higher. is this economy really strengthening? my guest is not buying it

handling of the 9/11 attack in libya? >> when the vice president of the united states directly contradicts the testimony, sworn testimony, of state department officials, american citizens have a right to know just what's going on. and we're going to find out. >> we cover it all this morning with our own debate. joining the conversation, virginia's republican governor bob mcdonnell. former democratic governor of michigan jennifer granholm. atlanta's democratic mayor kasim reed. republican strategist alex castellanos. and nbc's tom brokaw. >>> and later, politics, satire, and lots of laughs. i go one-on-one with stephen colbert. in character -- >> i don't really watch the news so much. i come in around 6:30 and i just say the opposite of whatever rachel maddow says the night before. and comedy just helps an idea go down. that's all. and it just makes you listen for a minute. >>> from nbc news in washington, "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. it is a critical time in the race for the white house now. over the next eight days, think about it, we'll see the final two
we don't want do have it." officials claim that the united states is not directly arming rebel fighters but the c.i.a. has reportedly sent officers to turkey in an effort to help funnel the weapons. now jennifer is at the pentagon this afternoon. this is not the first time we have concerned over jihadists in syria getting weapons. >>reporter: in fact the state department has been warning about this from the beginning. it is the qatar and saudis that were providing the weapons to the syrian opposition. >> i will just say that we have been tracking this all along. we have been discussing our concerns about extremists high, jag the operations of the syrian people. we have urged careful vetting all those things and we will continue to do so. >>reporter: another senior official said it is not exactly easy to determine whether all of this lethal material goes, which explains why the united states is toll roading carefully. some aid falls in the wrong saids and in syria the right hands today can be the wrong hands the next day. the israels have not requested that the united states be
an opportunity. if you were going to act, everybody knew this was an act of terrorism against the united states. there was ample warning, multiple requests for security, and instead, they have people there with handcuffs and tasers which is totally inadequate, especially given the high level of threat assessment that they already knew existed. the fact that they're going to commit assets a month later like greg says is too little far too late because we have four americans dead. >> can i make a point that the fact that you have people saying it's extremely political and exploitative to talk about libya. you can argue this is politically motivate by doing it the day before the date. >> this is quoting the ap story. details provided by three current and one former administration official as well as an analyst. i mean, isn't that -- the "new york times" article you said doesn't count. what about this? >> clearly whoever leaked that takes to your first point, that we should do it by surprise, obviously made that impossible. two things strike me. one, it means that they've identified who these peopl
. in addition this is a fight perceived to be between the united states and iran or iran and israel. iran does that and all of a sudden it's a fight with the entire world, with the rest of the persian gulf, with every other country involved that would be impacted by this. so for them it would be globalizing a conflict with them they have managed to keep on the down low including with russia and china. i just don't see a payoff for them at all. melissa: i don't know. i was in the region. a fair amount of their neighbors are not already happy with them. it is not like they're the most popular kids on the block anyway. their oil exports and according to opec and iea has been cut in half. where is the oil going? is it sitting around? is it in the well, they're not pumping it? i imagine they're not just sitting around and trying to sell it? >> a lot goes for domestic production, or domestic consumption. a lot is being sold illegally by iraq to syria on ships not registered. part of it is going out like that. i understand what you're saying. god knows i don't want to downgrade the notion of iranians
that create it. the pictures show how different the conditions are in the united states. in manhattan is perhaps the densest in the united states. and in wyoming on the other side where there is the lowest population. in new york city, the level, we would not even have a skill because everybody would be high up. the cost of the infrastructure per customer would not show much variation. has a broad band gap. more in tuition. here's a comparison of the united states and it shows how different we are from other large prosperous countries and why we have a challenge that maybe some other wealthy countries don't. in india the population density is almost 10 times that of the united states. in europe it's about five times that. then there's the u.s. one of the country's less dense than the us is canada. for the most part, the united states is at the low end of the density scale. that's why in some ways we have a peculiarly american problem. then we have new jersey and rhode island as the most dense states at 1200 people per square mile and new jersey is more dense than india. the state that
to be president of the united states of america. at a time when people are craving authenticity, i think joe biden delivered for the president. i think he activated the democratic base. and i think you'll see it in this week's numbers. >> governor, what do you think we learned about paul ryan? >> well, let me first say joe biden is authentic. and last week he said two important things to every voter. one, that the middle class has been buried during the last four years. of course, he's been in charge the last four years. number two, that absolutely obama and biden are going to raise your taxes about $2 trillion over the next four years. so what i would say is what we learned about paul ryan is he is thoughtful, he understands the budget better than anybody else, and that the top issue facing the country isn't bain capital, isn't mitt romney's tax returns, it isn't big bird, it's how to get the greatest country on earth out of debt and back to work. and when you look at 23 million americans unemployed, $16 trillion in debt, doubling gas prices, no coherent energy strategy, it's clear to me that the
and more interested in getting to the bottom of this than the president of the united states. he feels personal responsibility for every representative he sends around the world. he knew chris stevens. he admired chris stevens. so look, we want to get to the bottom of it and the first order of business is to bring to justice those who committed this heinous pant an act and sy find out what adjustments need to be made to further secure our diplomats around the world. >> chris: does the president take personal responsibility rest.e fact that rest. petersburged requests for -- repeated requests for more security were made and rejected. does he take personal responsibility for that? >> at the topline level the president of the united states is responsible for everything that happens on his watch. these were judgments made by the security folks at the state department and, of course, we are going review that whole process and see how those decisions are made and why those decisions were made and how we adjust in the future to make sure that we are giving our diplomats the maximum protection
line level the president of the united states is responsible for everything that happens under his -- on his watch. these were judgments that were made by the security folks at the state department and, of course we will review that whole process and see how those decisions are made, why those decisions were made, and, how we adjust in the future to make sure that we are giving our diplomats the maximum protection we can. the reality is, that many of these folks serve in dangerous places in the world and you can't 100% guarantee anything but we want to get as close to 100% as we can and that is why these investigations are moving forward. >> chris: i want to ask you about this question of personal responsibility, by the president, because, in the debate the vice president also blamed the intelligence community for the false reports that came out immediately after, about the idea that this was a spontaneous demonstration that ran amok. in fact, the top state department official said this week he was asked about that and this is what he said: "that is a question that you would have t
that we are very close to the united states which is clearly an advantage, but also we are investing a lot of infrastructure and in a very important thing, charlie, which is human capital. we have built in this six years 140 new universities from greenfields, public and free tuition universities. and we add there are like 113,000 new engineers graduating every year in mexico so today there are more engineers every year than in germany or u.k. or canada or brazil. and with that, a lot of companies, american and global companies are realizing that mexico is very, very competitive in manufacturing, for instance. even vis-a-vis china. >> rose: ed thing we read about are two big issues, one is narco terrorism. what is it going to take to win that battle? the second is immigration. >> well first a lot of courage, because otherwise it is impossible to deal with that. and you need to have the principals that no one nation could prosper without rule of law. because that is exactly our main focus, in the sense that we are not prosecuting drugs by drugs themselves. we are looking for rule of law in m
it to the united states government during world war ii, and so he was dn he had one of the greatest collection of coins and stamps. he really made a mark for himself. yeah? >> one of the things that strikes me about the guilded age and the wealth is that there were a lot of wealthy people who believed in giving back to society like app drew carnegie. did she donate money to public service? >> she never did it publicly. she would dismiss any suggestion that she had, but then her son said and others had said, that there were -- there were plenty of places she gave to or people she gave to. she never wanted it known. she felt she was hounded for her money, constantly getting letters besieging her. she tried to keep it as quiet as possible, and there's no proof. there's no proof. because other people said it at the time -- she had a very close friend who lived in the neighborhood here who was a catholic, great catholic my philanthropist, but that's how generous she was, and i think she got hetty to give money to the church, yeah, yeah. >> how hard was it to research? >> well, it was difficult beca

. in the united states, the richest 1% owned 38% of all wealth. the bottom 90% hold 73% of all debt. we are wiping out the planet and the public is left holding the bag. we definitely need something completely different. putting the moral outrage aside for a second, this situation also puts cities at great risk. we've only gotten a taste of the destruction that -- disruption as possible with the numerous revolutions that broke out. the crisis will land hardest in cities. i see city's borrowing language from complexity theory, i see the boys and a critical state. it is a new situation. 50% of global population is urban, young, and connected by mobile phones. the young are the hardest hit here. in spain, the unemployment rate for young adults is around 50%. in the united states, college graduates are leaving school with an average of $24,000 in student loan debt into labor market for their age group that has not been as bad as it is today since the depression or the 1940's. the smallest thing can trigger a crisis now. it is a powder keg. on the other hand, along with this crisis is a powerful new se
